Worst part for me was the numbing shot in the left and right vas deferens tube. Felt like a professional soccer player kicked me. Pain and stomach ache went away in about 5 seconds. Went home binged watch breaking bad for 4 days then went back to work. Still take it easy for the 5th-7th day. Also don’t forget to send the sample they will ask for a few months later. Don’t wanna think everything is good and be wrong. Good luck bud

Best thing I ever did. Got it done Friday morning and mowed the yard with a bag of peas between my legs that afternoon because I couldn’t sit around any longer.

We talked about my Africa trip during the whole procedure as I had just got back. Worst part was the smell when they cauterized

By Monday I was GTG

Jock strap, peas and pain killers are your friends. Not much pain really tho. Went to Nebraska a week later. Tweeked something I guess dragging a deer out but still didn't have any real pain to speak of. Blue balls and whiskey in deer camp!

don't worry, you won't mind laying around afterward. They'll be pretty sore for a few days, regardless of what some of these guys say. Ice pack is your friend.

Good luck! Your mileage may vary, but I had mine done about 15 years ago. There was nothing to it, and I had zero issues afterwards. I've never regretted having it done.

Had it done about 12yrs ago. Surgery wasn't too terrible but was in pain for many weeks. Took a month to actually be able to walk normally. Even the slightest touch was painful for many,, many weeks. That put a damper on certain.....activities for probably 2 months. Was a nightmare, but now that its over I'm sure glad I had its done.


Just reading this thread and others posts literally makes me feel a bit anxious and sick.

Dr Russell Williams, on Katy Freeway, does a scalpelless procedure. In and out in about 20 minutes, so swelling, no pain, no bruising or bleeding.

Played golf the next day.

Donít worry too much about discoloration cause they , it will be all sorts of color. When Dr. goes for the ropes and pulls a little feels like the base of brain and skull being pulled too. Over quickly and follow post op directions.

Don't be scared. I did it and was in a tree stand that afternoon. Between the pain and anxiety meds they gave me I am not sure which stand I hunted but I was in a tree somewhere. If they give you the script for the two anxiety pills only take one. The Detox off of those were the worst part. Going to be sensitive for a couple weeks.

I did EXACTLY what the doctor told me to do and was fine. And when he says it's okay to try them out, WAIT one more week. Friend of mine did what he was supposed to do and then tried to get back in the game one day early with balloon like results. SO when your "feeling fine"..... wait one more week.

Follow the docís instructions! I had mine done 2 years ago. He told me to wait 15 days, but I only made it 6...HUGE mistake. Excruciating pain, and I had a lot of discomfort on my right side for 3 weeks.
